Forum: netlabels Subject: Coax "From The Endless Auburn" [sfp14]

"Norwegian artist Coax, who has previously released on the Kahvi and Monotonik netlabels, returns with his second album on Soft Phase. From The Endless Auburn is a thrilling, evocative, emotional journey. Coax has crafted a cinematic masterpiece, blending a full orchestra, delicate piano, and tumbling synths to light up the mind's eye. His music has a raw, poignant beauty that sinks down into the heart.

Majestic strings, dark thundering brass, and bombastic percussion swell into dazzling vistas full of fiery arcs as planet and sun collide. Yet Coax shows us another side of the world: contemplative, enchanting, intertwined piano melodies, shimmering harps, ethereal choirs, and sparkling bits of diamond dust scattered through the cosmos. It's rich, moving audio imagery: quiet lost forests, the grand tumult of pitched battle, and autumn sunsets blending with swirling nebulae." -- Joshua Saddler
